I first saw this post on Kristin Kraves Books and I could not resist doing it myself. In fact, I just finished commenting on hers and IL already here writing mine.
THE ORIGINAL SIMS : BEST AUTHOR DEBUT
This one goes to My Absolute Darling which I read last year and was absolutely bowled over by. It was so heart breaking and so real yet too tragic to believe. If you haven’t read it and can stomach some things, please read it.
THE GRIM REAPER :
SADDEST CHARACTER DEATH
Sirius. I’ll keep shouting this from the rooftops but I don’t get why Sirius has to die. It felt unnecessary and just illogical. I may be blind because I love him BUT I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS DEATH!
SIMS GETTING STUCK : A CHARACTER THAT JUST GOT IN THE WAY
I actually cannot think of any right now. I keep racking my brains, trying to recall a character from a book but I only keep getting TV show characters so, does that count? I’ll take a vague shot and say Kitty Pong from Crazy Rich Asians, she keeps getting in her own way. Lol
SIMLISH : A BOOK WITH AMAZING WRITING
This Is How It Ends by Eva Dolan. I just kept turning pages and repeating, “Why haven’t I heard of this author before! This is pure genius!” The writing is smoothing and captures you in a vice like grip till the last page ends.
EXPANSION PACKS : A SERIES WHERE THE BOOKS KEEP GETTING BETTER AND BETTER
Well is there anything apart from Harry Potter? No there isn’t but there are a few others and I’ll mention the name of one that really needs more attention: the Vikramaditya Veergatha by Shatrujeet Nath. No I’m not related to him and no I’m not a friend. I just keep mentioning this book because it is great!
SIM ROMANCE: THE WORST CASE OF INSTA LOVE
The characters in Passenger. I don’t even remember their names but man did I find it annoying. Ugh.
CHEATS : A BOOK THAT WAS ENTIRELY UNREALISTIC
Awaken by Banker. He takes his racist beliefs and political leanings and anti Indian / anti Hindu ideas and pushes them across in such an unrealistic manner that I wanted to tear the book apart.
NEEDS FULFILMENT: A CHARACTER THAT MADE ALL THE WRONG DECISIONS
Am I wrong in thinking Sam Gamgee shouldn’t have taken on the task of supporting Frodo? Yes I’m aware that’s what he wanted to do but I just think he deserved more than stupid Frodo. He doesn’t even get his due! It’s so unfair!
ERROR CODE 12 : A SERIES THAT STARTED OFF GREAT BUT WENT DOWNHILL FROM THERE
Meluha. Yep. It was such a great start that just went kaput. I feel like he lost the magic for sure before book 3. It should have been contained to two books.
THE SIMS VORTEX : A BOOK/SERIES THAT COMPLETELY ENGROSSED YOU
Since I don’t want to repeat an answer I’ll go with 1Q84. I never thought I’d be so thoroughly involved with a 1000 page book but I was and it was amazing. A must read for fans of Murakami. I’d say it’s his best work yet.
